The tale of upgrading your computer gone wrong and more!


Today’s Episode

I learned a valuable lesson this weekend, that is if you want to update your BIOS in your computer, flash it. This weekend I wanted to install a new graphics card; the problem was, the motherboard did not like it. I was not booting to Windows and there was a problem with the motherboard. I searched the web trying to find a fix and found one. I had to update the BIOS. I found the manufacturers new program and it gave me an update. I decided to update the BIOS that way. Well, that was a big mistake. Windows crashed, there was no way to repair it. I had to buy a new SSD and install Windows fresh, which that lead to more problems. There is a happy ending, I did get my new graphics card installed and everything is working fine, but, I lost all my old files. The lesson here, always flash your BIOS. Never, I mean, never do it through a program on Windows. Let’s get on with the show!

The Best and Worst Moments of the Apple Event

On Today’s Episode:

Today on Digital Coffee, I will talk about the best and worst moments of the Apple Event. It was yesterday and all the Apple Fanatics gathered in one room. They were drinking KoolAide and loving what Apple had to say. Apple had a some interesting products coming out. However, the best news was Liam. Apple’s new robot that manages to recycle components from your old Apple products. This was a highlight of the show. One of the worst parts was Apple’s ignorance about the PC market. Yes, most PCs are old, but, many people update components inside of buying something new. If Apple had done some research, they would know this. It was a facepalm, but, most Apple users probably could care less. Not surprising was the announcement of a 4-inch iPhone. An iPhone for people who do not want a big screen, but want the quality of Apple products. Anyways, onto the tech news!

Send a Digital Check to Digital Coffee- Episode 64

Send a Digital Check to Digital Coffee for $3,000. Yes, you can now send a digital check through an interesting website called Checkbook. This allows individuals and businesses to send people money, without getting checks or a checkbook. This makes it convenient, but my concern is about security. Hacking is a big problem and I hope this company has taken the necessary steps to ensure people’s money and personal information is safe. I am also getting really tired about they way the government has handled encryption. The IRS should have had top encryption for everyone’s personal information, but failed on all levels. These blunders should question the validity of the government wanting weak encryption. Some of us live in the west, but freedom is changing and not for the better. Anyways, there’s more I talk about.

Digital Coffee password is 12345 – Episode 61

Digital Coffee password is 12345. Yes, now I have to change my luggage combination. It was such an easy password to remember. Yes, I talk about the debate between Apple and the big bad government. This is a fight that is really the FBI’s fault. They are the ones that made is harder to crack the information they need. However, it’s easier to make Apple the villain. Besides the FBI really does not care about protecting your privacy or rights. They only want to spy on us. I will and forever be against the government spying on me. I do not care if I have “nothing to hide” argument. They should have probable cause to do that, as the constitution states. Ugh… Anyways, there’s more tech news!
